dc.description This paper discusses some “historical milestones” in computer ethics, as well as two alternative visions of the future of computer ethics. Topics include the impressive foundation for computer ethics laid down by Norbert Wiener in the 1940s and early 1950s; the pioneering efforts of Donn Parker, Joseph Weizenbaum and Walter Maner in the 1970s; Krystyna Gorniak's hypothesis that computer ethics will evolve into “global ethics”; and Deborah Johnson's speculation that computer ethics may someday “disappear”. The paper established the author as a historian for the field leading to his entry in the Stanford Encyclopaedia of Philosophy (plato.stanford.edu/entries/ethics-computer/). en
